  PP-Module for VPN Clients (VPN), Version 2.2 Published! (05 January 2021)

 

The National Information Assurance Partnership/Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (NIAP/CCEVS) is pleased to announce the posting of the PP-Module for VPN Clients (VPN), Version 2.2.

This updated version resolves numerous inconsistencies and conflicts for evaluations of standalone VPN applications (e.g VPN Client PP-Module with the Application Software PP as its Base-PP).  Specifically, the updates for standalone VPN Client apps allows the TOE to rely on the platform for its cryptographic primitives, but the TOE must provide all the IPsec functionality. This ensures the client application provides applicable VPN security functionality while still allowing the application to leverage the platform capabilities.  Other changes include adding MDM Version 4.0 as an applicable Base-PP, incorporation of all published TDs, and updates to the CC format for PP-Modules (added rationale sections).
